Bygone Days \ r 

Soon after the town of Jackson had 
been legally created, the second issue of 
"The Pioneer," apparently Jackson's first 
newspaper, printed the following 

Jackson Male Academy 

"The academy will be opened in the 
town of Jackson on the first Monday in 
February next, under the superintendence 
of the subscriber who proposes to teach 
most of the branches of learning, usually 
taught in institutions of this kind at the 
following prices; 

Spelling, reading and writing, per ses- 
sion $6 
Geog, Eng Gram, moral phil, and 
rhetoric $8 
The same or any pan thereof with the 
Latin Language $12.50 
The sessions consists of five months. The 
price of tuition will be required in ad- 
vance." The date on the paper was Janu- 
ary 27, 1823. 

Union university was first called 
Southwestern Baptist College. It was 
originally located in Murfreesboro, Ten- 
nessee. The unity of Baptist movement, a 
lack of funds for the school and the 
desire for an institution in the western 
grand division of the state were the main 
reasons for moving the school to Jack- 
son. It was located northeast of the 
square on a beautiful site. 

The school prospered until 1912. A fire 
in January destroyed the college hall and 
the chapel. The fire spread so quickly that 
all anyone could do was to watch the 
buildings burn. The major event put the 

school in debt and caused the leadership 
to work exceedingly hard to keep the 
school open. Yet, they managed to meet 
the challenges of rebuilding and continu- 
ing the heritage of Union. In 1975, Union 
moved to its new campus of 190 acres 
located in North Jackson along Highway 
45 By-Pass. 

Union has come a long way from 
those early days of a strict and quiet little 
establishment with a handful of students. 
Union still upholds the beliefs on which 
it was founded and gains from this factor. 

As a point of interest, we decided to 
list a few of Union 's rules by which the 
students had to live over a century ago. 

1) students were strictly required to be in 
their rooms from 6:30 to 10:30 to study. 

2) all lights were to be out from 10:30 
PM to 5:00 AM 

3) students were not allowed to purchase 
items on credit at any store without the 
written permission of their parents. 

If you think those rules were funny, 
wait until you read this! A Mr. X was on 
trial for talking to the young ladies! After 
stating his case, he retired to his room. He 
was found guilty by the faculty and was 
excluded from the library for one month 
and was made to apologize to the ladies 
for insolence. Can you image what the 
faculty of 100 years ago would do if they 
came to the campus today and watched 
the students.'

tion and reconstruction dates of 
Union's campus buildings. 

, Would you believe that this is the fitst Barton 
Hall? An impressive place! 

The Inevitable 


What does it wean to be a senior? I 
guess ttiat's the question ttiat some of 
us in the class of 1987 will be asking 
ourselves all the way to graduation. 
(For convenience's sake, I will disre- 
gard those members of our class who 
seem to be oblivious to the great tran- 
sition about to occur in our lives.) I 
have talked with several other soon- 
to-be -graduates and found that they 
are experiencing the same melancholy 
that 1 am. This year, as opposed to the 
previous three, every moment is to be 
savored, remembered, and stored 
away as a treasured memory. Each 
party, each ball game, each heart-to- 
heart talk is made more special by the 
inevitable thoughts "this may be the 
last, " or "this time next year " What 
will life be like at Union when we're 
gone.'' What will we be doing after we 
leave? What will our lives be like 

I suppose I'm not taking this very 

well — this business of being a senior. 
Perhaps I'm taking it too seriously. I 
don't know. I only know what has 
happened with my friends who have 
already graduated. One year seemed to 
change them so drastically. That one 
year matured them — .gave them that 
bitter-sweet attitude about leaving 
Union, (or so it seemed to me). I also 
know what my parents have always 
said to me when I've complained 
(heaven forbid!) about papers, classes, 
and too much to do. "These are the 
best four years of your life." 

Are these the best years of our 
lives? Why? Do I really need to ask? 
Most of us have much less responsi- 
bility now than we will ever ha ve after 
we gain our degree. We are also in a 
somewhat protective environment 
now because we are surrounded by 
our Christian friends and faculty who 
are so willing to help us grow. After

graduation, things will certainly 
change. I'm not against change; in 
fact, I think I'm pro -change. Only I'm 
getting somewhat sentimental and I'm 
gravely feeling my 21 years. 

Forgive us, our fellow students, and 
try to understand why we get a bit 
teary-eyed and all serious during hap- 
py fun -loving times. You see, we, the 
graduates of '87, have enough sense to 
know what we're leaving behind — 
those things that we will never be able 
to regain or experience again. The day 
we step across the stage (May 30, 
1987), we will no longer be a part of 
you, the undergraduate students. And 
that, for me, and others of my class, is 
somehow, a source of regret.

\ Sugar Shack 


As one looks around the caw- 
pus. he sees many things. When 
one leaves the main building and 
makes his way back Co the dorm 
areas where the real student life 
abounds, he will notice a structure 
between the commons buildings 
known by the administration of the 
school as the Gazebo. The Gazebo 
provides a place for students to 
talk and relax in an outside setting. 
It is especially popular during the 
warmer months of the year. Stu ■ 
dents bring their recorders; they 
play music, and converse, and turn 
the "shack" into a party place. 
Some students have used the area 
for a barber shop while others have 
even attempted to study in this 

The Gazebo has a much more 
popular name coined by the stu- 
dents. We call this structure the 
"Sugar Shack". The shack, at one 
time, had lights, but they never 
seemed to work. The students 
don't seem to mind, though; they 
continue to gather and utilize the 
open building. Most people take 
the Gazebo for granted and almost 
forget it's there. But, it would be 
missed if it were gone. The "sugar 

shack" provides a lot of memories. 
The freshmen notice the shack, but 
see no real purpose for it. The 
sophomores have learned that it's a 
great place to meet other folks. 
The juniors know that every season 
finds a new reason for the shack. 
The seniors know that without the 
shack, they probably would have 
failed a test or missed a talk with 
that special "friend." The shack 
that started from a very humble 
beginning has become an integral 
part of student life, and, if the stu- 
dents have their way, it will remain 
there for many years to come for 
students to enjoy. All who read 
this article will remember some- 
thing funny or sad that took place 
in the "sugar shack. " Stop in and 
enjoy the Gazebo. If you listen 
closely enough when no one else is 
around, you may hear voices from 
the past speak and laugh. By the 
way, don't you wonder what it 
would tell you if it could talk.'' 

Chaos With Character 


Chaos. Webster defines it as extreme 
confusion or disorder. Character is de- 
fined as moral strength or a specific trait 
of an individual or group. So, "chaos with 
character" is very appropriate for Union's 
students: extreme confusion with specific 
traits of moral strength. The campus ap- 
pears to ha ve people running around not 
knowing where they are going. In spite of 
this appearance, things are accomplished 
with a real flair for the unique. The dif- 
ferent events through the year give all an 
opportunity to enjoy Union to the fullest. 
All can remember the times they were 
fifteen minutes late for that all important 
test that determined an A or B (C or D 
for those normal students.) Many sleep- 
less nights were caused by practicing for 
cheers, all-sing, or just doing laundry for 
the next day. Through all of this, we 
managed to grow and learn — how, we 're 
not totally sure. Would you believe that 
no matter how hard you try a day only 
has 24 hours.-' We seem to work it out 
somehow through the chaos. So jump 
into the chaos and get some character!

\ Friendships 


Gan- watches his friends on the 
intramural field. 

All students who walk the halls of Union 
go through adjustments, not only during the 
first few weeks of their freshmen year, but 
also right up to the last day of their senior 
year! Coming to Union has changed all of 
our lives in one way or another, whether we 
realize it or not! We meet new friends; we 
receive our first taste of life "out in the real 
world." Many face the new changes and 
challenges with hesitancy. Those who have 
recentlv left the "Prom Queen " days of high 
school find that their first few days of col- 
lege are much different from what they ex- 

However, most fmd that college life at 
Union is warm and receptive. Lasting friend- 
ships are quickly made. Many of these 
friendships grow into a special bond that 
becomes more than the word "Friend" im- 
plies. These friendships bring us together 
more like "Family", made up of special peo- 
ple who know both your dreams and fears 
and help you find those seemingly fading 

Lisa and Pam cake time to converse in the ball 
fcerneen classes. 

Some students stay in shape by reg- 
ularly attending our aerobics 

. . . Rainbows! 

Throughout the years 
at Union, students will 
laugh together and cry 
together. They will sup- 
port each other with a 
special kind of love that 
will last long after they 
leave the hallowed halls 
of Union. 

Michael W. Smith says 
it best; "Friends are 
friends forever if the 
Lord is the Lord of 

As we look back across the years, one of the 
most prominent memories is our friendships. These 
friendships are what make our Union experiences 
so special. 


2ash Strikes It Rich 


Miss Cash entered a local pageant 
dreaming of becoming Miss America, 
and it happened. Kellye began her climb 
to Miss America by capturing the title of 
Miss Milan Crown and Sceptor; after 
claiming her first victory, she never 
looked back. 

Miss Cash's big smile, fantastic talent 
and pretty figure were a captivating com- 
bination. Kellye was a major force in all 
areas of competition. In the talent com- 
petition, she sang and accompanied her- 
self on the piano while wearing black. 
Miss Cash was quoted as saying she 
guessed that it ran in the family. She is the 
grandniece of entertainer Johnny Cash. 

When she won the title of Miss Ten- 
nessee in Jackson's Civic Center, she was 

elated. This win gave her the extra confi- 
dence she needed to compete in the Miss 
America Pageant. Kellye left for Atlantic 
City, New Jersey with high hopes and 
with best wishes from the entire state. 
When Miss Cash appeared on stage in 
Atlantic City, she was an instant star. She 
dazzled the audience as she sang "I'll Be 
Home" in hopes of bringing the title 
back to Tennessee. Kellye did just that 
by capturing the title of Miss America, 

Kellye is the first Miss Tennessee since 
1946 to become Miss America. This ac- 
complishment was an honor both for 
Kellye and Tennessee. What a way to 
make 1986 a real homecoming!

parade for Miss Cash. 


The current Miss Tennessee. Kris Beasley, was 
originally the first runner up in the Miss Tennessee 
Pageant. Kris, a native Memphian, received the title 
when Miss Cash, the original winner of the Pag- 
eant, crowned Miss Beasley during a special cere- 
mony here in Jackson. Miss Beasley competed in 
the Miss Tennessee Pageant by previously winning 
the Miss Memphis title. 

Miss Cash captured the Miss America title which 
allowed Miss Beasley to become the new Miss 
Tennessee. Kris was interviewed by the local news 
shortly after receiving her new title. She was obvi- 
ously happy for Kellye and elated by the series of 
events which had taken place. Kris will definitely 
represent Tennessee with style — Tennessee style! 


omin' Home 


1986 was truly Tennessee's 
homecoming! It was a year for re- 
living old memories and making 
new ones. Reflected in the Tennes- 
see homecoming logo, this was a 
time for returning home to "cele- 
brate good friends, good times and 
the good life "; a time for rediscov- 
ering roots, looking into the past, 
and building on it for the future. It 
was more than a celebration; it was 
a rediscovery of those values that 
Americans everywhere recognize as 
their roots and their heritage. 

With the help of Pilot Commu- 
nities all over Tennessee, the state 
had a complete facelift. The Pilot 
Community of Milan, Tennessee 
had "I'll be home for Christmas" as 
its theme, with a big red bow tied 
around a tree in every yard in town. 

Everyone from Minnie Pearl to 
Alex Haley joined the celebrations. 
Commercials on both television 
and radio enthusiastically encour- 
aged people to "come on and en- 
joy a foot-pattin' down home 

good time!" 

True Tennessee pride was 
shown throughout the state as 
Tennessee was given this special 
year to shine. And shine we did!! 

Civil War reinactments at Shi- 
loh, Parker's- Crossroads, Pick- 
wick, and others were visited by 
people from all over the United 
States from New York to 

The softer side of the celebra - 
tion was seen in commercials such 
as the one with "Amazing Grace" 
being sung or played in many vari- 
ous ways. The theme rang out that 
"no matter how you play it, the 
message is always the same!" 

People all over the state, from 
the great Smokeys to the Mighty 
Mississippi, from the one -room 
country churches to the State Cap- 
itol, Tennesseans are proud to be 
Americans and are proud of their 
state! Whether it's 1986 or the year 
2000, "Come on home to the good 
life ..."

yy Orace Till You Come To The Table 




The theatre has undegone a major ten - 
ovation this year. The new director, Mr. 
Da vid Burke, toolc over in the fall and has 
given a whole new look to the facility. 
The first major thing one notices is the 
physical rearrangement. The stage is now 
a permanent structure with the chairs sit- 
uated around it on platform risers. This 
arrangement enables the audience to have 
a wide panoramic view of the actors as 
they perform. The fall play, "The Glass 
Menagerie" by Tennessee Williams, con- 
tained several firsts for the drama depart- 
ment. It was the first play in the new 
setting, the first play under the direction 
of Mr. Burke, and first play with new 
lighting techniques. The production was 
a success by all standards. 

The audience entered the theatre on 
opening night with music playing in the 
background. The music set the "stage" 
for what seemed to be the start of a 
wonderful evening of entertainment. 
Suddenly, the lights began to fade and 
the music filled the air; the show was 
about to begin. As the music faded, one 
solitary actor appeared on stage. 

He begins to relate the background of the 
play. Suddenly one hears, "Tom! Can't 
say grace til you come to the table!" The 
mother played very convincingly by San- 
dra Skinner is ready to start dinner but is 
waiting on our narrator. 

The production unfolded into a work 
of art. Each scene captivated the audience 
with intensity and professionalism. The 
character Laura played by Suzetta Tillman 
made one want to run up and hug her 
and tell her everything is going to be all 
right. Tom, played by Kelly CoUenborne, 
exhibited the true desire to express him- 
self and leave his familiar world behind. 
Jim, portrayed by Jim Tartar, put a sparkle 
of real hope and humor in an otherwise 
oppressive situation. Jim gave the audi- 
ence a chance to laugh and Laura a 
chance to feel like a real person for a 
fleeting moment. The play came alive and 
leaped into the hearts of everyone pre- 
sent. Congratulations to Mr. Burke and 
the Union Players for a job well done. 
But remember, we can't start or say grace 
until you come to the table. 

ilfy/ student Reception 

G:;i- ;irru'-- r.i.J' makes Union such a success 
is cbe clo^icress of the administration and facul- 
ty with the students. One way this closeness is 
expressed is through the President's Reception 
held at the beginning of each fall semester. 
Turning the everyday cafeteria into a formal 
setting, the reception provides an opportunity 
for students to talk with their professors outside 
of a classroom atmosphere. Union University's 
acting President, Dr. Hyran Barefoot, and his 
lovely wife greeted students as they entered. 
They were introduced by Student Government 
Association President, Drew Gay. 


Entertainment T onight 

The Talent Show was held on October 
1-1 and was entitled "Entertainment To- 
night." Becky McFarland walked away 
with grand champion honors with her 
selection of "Kingdom of God." Becky 
finished first in Women's Vocal, and 
Chip Leake dominated Men's Vocal with 
"He Holds the Keys." Sheera Oakley 
captured the instrumental category with 
the piano composition "Toccata." Other 
divisions included comedy, won by Gina 
Kelley, and faculty vocal duet, won by 
Renee Mitchell and Brad Sargent. Scott 
Powers and Brian Howard emceed the 
night's function. Over all, the talent show 
was a huge success and should continue 
to be a popular event for years to come.

And The Winner Is 

As the stage lights faded and 
the mask swelled. Hollywood 
was honored at Union Univer- 
sity. The theme for this year's 
pageant was "Hooray for Hol- 
lywood" honoring the movie 
capital's 100th anniversary. The 
contestants brought beauty and 
grace to the stage as they repre- 
sented different groups on 
campus. Each lady was a plea- 
sure to watch as she performed 
her talent and displayed her 
beauty in evening gown. As the 
girls graced the stage few real- 
ized the preparation required for 
the pageant — the long hours 

of practice, dieting, exercising, 
and making decisions about 
hair styles and makeup. 

Renee Guyton did her part as 
she received the title of Miss 
Union University 1987. She per-

Let There Be Fraise 

"Let There Be Praise" was an appropriate title 
for this year's All-Sing competition. It was evi- 
dent from the beginning that much time and 
preparation went into the performances. The 
groups performed a variety of different styles of 
music to please all kinds of music lovers in the 
audience. The theme "Let There Be Praise" was 
characterized in a production number done by a 
combination of the groups led by director Bill 
Poyner. Dr. Terry Spohn was Master of Cere- 
monies and provided "humorous entertain- 
ment" for the audience throughout the pro- 
gram. After excellent performances by each 
group, the judges were faced with the difficult 
task of choosing a winner When the results 
were presented, the women of Chi Omega were 
named grand champions, with Lambda Chi run- 
ning a close second, and Sigma Alpha Epsilon 
capturing third place. This night was very suc- 
cessful and will long be remembered by all who

The women of Chi Omega won the heart of the judges 
and their score sheers as they captured the championship 
trophy. Chi Omega opened their show with a light- 
hearted rendition of "Friendship. " Their performance 
ended with their sacred piece. "I've Just Seen Jesus, " 
which was effectively and movingly portrayed. 

Lambda Chi Alpha took us on a trip to Broadway with a 
medley of "Give My Regards to Broadway" and "New 
York, New York." They performed "I Am" for their 
sacred piece. They were awarded second place for their 

Awarded the third place trophy were the men of Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon who opened their performance with a 
moving medley of "Pierce My Ear" and "People Need

The wumcn tit Zefa Tnu Alpha gave a beaurilul performance of 
"Irving Berlin: A Choral Portrait" and "Be Ye Glad"

The 1986 Homecoming Court was pre-

Homecoming this year 
was again a big success. The 
1986 theme, "Yesterday 
Once More." attracted 
Union students and alumni 
and caused them to look 
back on the years that have 
made Union an outstanding 
institution. During home- 
coming week, events took 
place that provided fun and 
school spirit. Class play day 
and a pep rally both excited 
the students and provided 
close fellowship among 
classmates. The night before 

Homecoming provided the 
campus residents with the 
traditional bonfire. Students 
gathered to show their sup- 
port for the basketball team 
and our University. Home- 
coming Day began with the 
showing of displays by each 
class and Greek organiza- 
tion. Reception rooms for 
alumni to visit to reacquaint 
themselves with old friends 
were available. Between 
imes, the Homecoming 
Court was announced.

When the fired -up Union 
Bulldogs took the floor, 
they took control. Mid -way 
through the first half, the 
Bulldogs took a command- 
ing lead. Outstanding per-

David Barham, Willie Hol-

team rolled to a convincing 
93-69 victory over Lane Col-

The Lady Bulldogs who came 
into the game with an undefeated 
record, entertained the Lady Pacers

It's hard to keep in mind chut he originally came from a 
computer chip, but Max Headroom has been a calk-show 
regular on Cinemax and a pitchman for Coca - Cola. The summer 
of '86 was detlnicely Max's era, with "C-CC-Cacch che Wave" 
on everything from billboards to T. V. commercials. Max got his 
scare in his own one hour movie called Max Headroom! 20 
Minutes Into the Future which aired on Cinemax. Immediacely 
after his movie, he began as hose of a music- video series on 
Cinemax, in which Max introduced a few videos and inter- 
viewed several rock stars. During this popular show, Max's 
inevitable rudeness and cockiness came through clear: yawning 
during one of Sting 's more ponderous remarks or offering little 
gifts; usually golf shoes. Oh, well, as they say, "Television makes

1986 In Retrospect 


April 26, 1986 marked the date of 
the first nuclear reactor catastrophe in 
world history. The Chernobyl nuclear 
reactor in the Ukraine of the Soviet 
Union exploded as a result of a whole 
series of gross violations of operating 
regulations by the workers. The ca- 
lamity occurred, ironically, in the 
course of a safety test. At 1:23 a.m. on 
April 26, the workers began the actual 
experiment by stopping power to the 
turbine. The reactor immediately be- 
gan to overheat dangerously, and 
since the emergency cooling system 
had been shut off, there was no back 
up. Within seconds, there was a tre- 
mendous power surge that caused two 
explosions, blew the roof off the reac- 
tor building and ignited more than 30 
fires around the plant. The damaged 
reactor core and the graphite sur- 
rounding it began burning at tempera - 
tures as high as 2.800 F. The Soviet 
firefighters tried to extinguish the 
blaze with 5,000 tons of boron, lead 
and other materials. The fire contin- 
ued to burn for 12 days. Radiation 
soared to deadly levels of 2,500 times 
that of normal safety levels. The Sovi- 
ets failed to tell the neighboring 
countries about the accident. Only af- 
ter furious protests from Sweden did 
the Soviet Union admit that anything 
had happened, and then made only 
limited comments in reply to terse 
statements. Chernobyl is certain to 
cast a shadow across the Soviet Union 
and the whole world for a long time 
to come. 

The first major tax overhaul since the adoption of the tax system 
was passed in 1986. A lot of confusion was created with the new tax 
law. No one really knows what the full extent of this reform will be, 
but it is evident that the old ways of figuring tax is obsolete. One 
heard many things such as, get married, don't invest in rental 
property, invest in the money market and by all means, don't take 
your boss to lunch. All of this was caused by a wave of accountants 
trying to decipher the new laws. A few points are evident though: 
sales tax is no longer deductible on cars; the fourteen different tax 
brackets ranging from 11 to 50 percent have changed to only two 
brackets of 15 and 28 percent; and, personal exemptions are higher, 
but the exemptions are harder to achieve. Singles, may find higher 
taxes while married couples find reduced taxes. Whatever the 
ultimate outcome, we, the people, are still taxed and taxes will still 
be an American tradition. 

On January 28, 1986, the nation was held in 
silence as we watched the sudden and tragic 
destruction of seven courageous astronauts on 
board the Challenger. Only seventy-three sec- 
onds after the shuttle lifted off, it exploded with 
a burst of fire and bellowing smoke. It was 
several moments before spectators and NASA 
officials realized what happened, but when they 
did, a feeling of disbelief emerged. What had 
become a routine event suddenly turned into a 
nightmare. This would have been the twenty - 
fifth space shuttle mission and the first of fif- 
teen nights scheduled for 1986. The remaining 
fourteen flights were immediately cancelled. 
What made their mission unique from the oth- 
ers was that, for the first time, a civilian was to 
be sent into space. This honor would go to 
Christa McAuliffe, a teacher who was to give 
two fifteen minute classes to millions of school 
children while on the shuttle. 

Gennadiy Zakharov, a Soviet U.N. employee 
was arrested on a subway platform in New York 
City and charged with spying. A week later, 
American journalist Nicholas S. Daniloff was 
arrested on the streets of Moscow and accused 
of spying on the Soviet Union. Daniloff spent 
13 days in a Soviet prison before being released 
to the U.S. embassy and before being allowed 
to return home to the U.S. Zakharov, too. was 
released to the Soviet embassy and allowed to 
return to his home nation. Although Moscow 
claimed Daniloff was held on spy charges, the 
White House said he was held hostage, plain 
and simple. Both men were released within 
weeks and the entire affair set the stage for a 
superpower summit meeting in Iceland. 

On a beautiful July day, the stage was set; thousands of people lined 
the streets of London; hotse drawn carriages arrived on cue; the royal 
family arrived at Westminister Abbey. What was iti' Another Royal 
Wedding, of course! This time Prince Andrew, younger brother of 
Charles, and Sarah Ferguson — a commoner of all things — were saying 
those sacred vows. 

It seems hard to believe that five years ago. Prince Charles took Lady 
Diana Spencer as his wife in a fairy tale wedding with all the pomp and 
pageantry that was deserving of a future king. However, this wedding was 
different. There were no foreign heads of state present; no national 
holiday declared. Only friends and family filled the abbey to witness this 
perfect match become husband and wife. For all the splendor of the 
pageantry, the ceremony never lost a sense of down-home majesty, best 
caught perhaps by the four tiny bridesmaids dressed like floral sylphs and 
the four small pages clad in naval costumes. 

As hundreds of thousands of onlookers watched, the two said, "I will", 
and left the abbey not as prince and commoner, but as the Duke and 
Duchess of York. The honeymoon consisted of a five day cruise through 
the Azores, including an overnight stay near the island of Pico. 

During the weeks between 
March 24 and April 21 of 1986, 
anxiety, satisfaction, and fear filled 
the minds of most Americans as 
the U.S. retaliated against terror- 
ism. The U.S. Sixth Fleet crossed 
Muammar Gaddafi's "Line of 
Death" and fired upon missile sites 
at Misurata, Sun, and Benghazi. 
For too long U.S. citizens had been 
targeted for terrorists attacks. 
Gaddafi, "the mad dog of the 
Middle East", had been accused of 
financially supporting world-wide 
terrorism. The Reagan Administra- 
tion decided it was time to fight 
back. The carriers, America and 
CoraJ Sea, 14 escort Warships, and 
2 other support vessels sailed into 
the Gulf of Sidra to carry out the 
orders of attack from the Com- 
mander- in - Chief 

It took a severe drought to erase that 
legendary "Mason-Dixon Line". The 
drought spread through the Southeast dur- 
ing 1986. It was the worst dry spell on U.S. 
record. At the peak of the drought, crops 
wilted in the sun from southern Pennsylvania 
all the way into northern Florida. Even after 
some rain, many farmers in the Carolinas, 
Georgia, Tennessee, and Virginia were on 
the brink of ruin. Many chose to sell out 
while still on top, but others clung to the 
fight against the heat. In many areas the 
drought was so bad that farmers were unable 
to find hay for less than $3 a bale to keep 
their dairy cows from starvation. The farmers 
in the far north heard of these trials and 
banded together to help. The farmers from 
the Dakota's, Washington, Wyoming, and 
other states sent train loads of hay to their 
fellow farmers in the South.

Patrick Henry Sherrill had been a 
part-time letter carrier in Edmond, 
Oklahoma for 16 months when he 
walked into the post office last Au-

being reprimanded by two supervisors 
the day before, he returned the next 
day at 7 a.m. dressed in his blue uni- 
form carrying three pistols and am- 
munition in a mailbag. Without a 
word, he gunned down his co-work- 
ers, killing 14 and wounding 6 before 
taking his own life. SheriU, 44, was 
described as a loner. He was unmar- 
ried and apparently had no close 
friends. Having been an ex-marine 
and expert marksman, he served in the 
national guard as a handgun instruc- 
tor. It was the third worst mass mur- 
der in the U.S. history.

President Reagan and Soviet leader Mik- 
hail Gorbachev met in Reykjavik, Iceland 
for a two -day summit in October to discuss 
arms control Their meeting was historic by 
any measure — it was the first summit be- 
tween the two superpowers in more than six 
years. The private conversations between the 
two leaders were sometimes friendly, some- 
times brutally direct. Six private meetings 
lasted five hours in all, only to reach an 
impasse on testing of the U.S. Star Wars 
weaponry. In American opinion, Ronald 
Reagan emerged the victor. Most people 
blamed Gorbachev for the failure to reach an 
agreement and Reagan found support for 
rejecting the Soviet proposals. The two men 
did agree to push for more concrete steps to 
reduce the risks of an accidental nuclear war. 
The hope is that one day an agreement be- 
tween our two countries for peace will be a 



Crimes statistics have begun rising again in 
our cities, and drugs are implicated in more than 
half of them. Illegal drug trafficking is growing 
at a vet}' rapid rate. Street names include grass, 
snow, speed, horse, angel dust, and other inno- 
cent sounding names. Unfortunately, these in- 
nocent names cause tragic consequences. The 
government estimates a $110 billion -a -year 
drug habit in the U.S. One of the newest, purest, 
and most addictive drugs on the market is a 
deadly distillate of cocaine. Cocaine has four 
million to five million regular customers. Crack, 
a smokable form of cocaine that can be man- 
factured in the kitchen, has become America 's 
fastest -growing drug epidemic and potentially 
its most serious. Crack addiction has already 
reached crisis proportions. Crack is cheap, plen- 
tiful, and intensely addictive. Its users come 
from all social strata and walks of life, and its 
use is spreading nationwide.

The drug crisis has really been a top 
issue in 1986. Many rallys, commercials 
and campaigns have shouted the motto: 
"Just Say No!" New ways of apprehend- 
ing drug dealers and abusers have gone

tive as the method used by the 13 -year-

To play basketball for the World Champion 
Boston Celtics is a dream that almost all young- 
sters would like to realize. University of Mary- 
land stand-out, Len Bias, was on the verge of 
making his dream become reality when cocaine 
took his young life. Bias, an All- American, died 
of cocaine intoxication in his dormitory room. 
Less than 48 hours earlier. Bias had been drafted 
by the Boston Celtics. In his celebration of a 
dream come true, Buis used cocaine for proba- 
bly the first time, but definitely for the last. The 
death of Len Bias at the age of 22 shook the 
nation. The reality of the dangers of drugs that 
for so long had been incomprehensible sudden - 
ly were thrust into the unhindered view of ev- 
eryone. Would America be as aware of the 
consequences of drugs if Bias would have "just 
said no".' Would we be seeing "Nocaine" com- 
mercials on television if Bias were living out an 
illustrious career in the NBA.' Len Bias is mak- 
ing it possible for many young people to have a 
drug free life through his death. 

After resting on the ocean floor for 
nearly three-quarters of a century, a 
great ship seemed to come to life 
again. Nobody had seen the great 
"unsinkable" Titanic since it struck an 
iceberg and sank on its maiden voyage 
in April 1912, carrying more than 1,500 
of the 2,000 passengers to their deaths 
74 years ago. Marine Geologist Rob - 
ert Ballard led teams from the Woods 
Hole Oceanographic Institution in 
what has become the most celebrated 
feat of underwater exploration — the 
discovery of the Titanic wreckage. 
With the aid of underwater submersi- 
bles nicknamed "Alvin" and "J.J.", 
startling new information was re- 
vealed. They failed to find the 300 ft. 
gash that, according to legend, was 
torn in the Titanic's hull when the ship 
plowed into the iceberg. Evidence also 
revealed that the ship broke apart, not 
as it hit bottom, but as it sank: the 
stern which settled almost 1,800 ft. 
from the bow, had swiveled 18(f on its 
way down. During the 12 day explora - 
tion "There was not a square inch of 
the Titanic that has not been photo- 
graphed in beautiful detail" stated 44 
year old Ballard. Between the two sec- 
tions of the ship, the Woods Hole 
Scientists found a large debris field 
littered with priceless artifacts that in- 
cluded cannonballs, scattered pottery, 
a patent-leather shoe, copper kettle, 
silver bars and three of the ship's safes. 

<^ Empty Mailbox Syndrome y 

Are you one of [he many students who checks his 
mailbox everyday only to find that it is empty? If you 
are. you're a victim of the "Empty Mailbox Syn- 

Everyday students journey to their mailboxes hop- 
ing that something will be there. Like children at 
Christmas, they anticipate finding a letter or note, only 
to find airmail (an empty box). So many students 
check their box three or four times a day knowing that 
the only thing that might be in it is junkmail that hits 
the trash can about as fast as it comes out of the box. 

What cure is there for this syndrome.^ Most stu- 
dents find the solution sometime during their junior 
year. Four steps to the solution are: 1. check your 
mailbox once a day; 2. Don't expect anything in it 
when you get there; 3. Make sure it is real mail when 
there is something in the box before celebrating; And 
4. See a psychiatrist if the first three steps don 't work.

What is the most important item in the life of a Union student ■' It is 
the student ID., of course! Without this valuable piece of plastic, a 
student can 't eat, check out recreation equipment, or even get in the 
dorms after midnight. At Union, a student is totally lost without an 
official ID. More important than the correct uses of this treasured 
article are the handy things it can do around campus. It is great to have 
when you find yourself in one of those rare boring classes and need a 
straight edge to complete your masterful artwork on the desktop. 
Then when class is over, stick your I.D. in you book so you will be 
ready for tomorrow's class. What do you do when your roommate is 
gone for the weekend and you desperately need something from his 
room, like money? The security of the dormitory doors is so remark- 
able that the only thing that can possibly get you in is your I.D. What 
about the times when you find the windshield of you car covered with 
ice, and you just couldn 't beg together that 99i for a handy -dandy ice 
scraper, what do you do.-' Just pull out that trusty I.D. and go to work. 
Some of the best portraits ever made are those on your I.D. You 
always seem to make that face that looks like you Ve been on a four 
day drunk when it is I.D. time. Some people collect stamps, some 
collect coins, but those of us who discover that we are on Union 's 
seven year plan collect I.D.s. Hey, you can scrape gum from your shoe, 
cut butter, and even pick your teeth with your ID. So what do you do 
with it when you graduate ... save it! Twenty years from now pull it 
oat, laugh at your picture, and reminisce about those glorious college

Prospective students for Union 
usually are given a rather extensive 
tour of the campus; and yet, n wa - 
jor attraction is often missed unless 
the campus is toured during or 
shortly after a good rain. Between 
the housing complex and the cafe- 
teria, at the east end of the side- 
walk is what, at one time, was a 
small puddle. Since that time, it has 
grown into a larger puddle; then a 
pond; and in its most recent devel- 
opment, it has become Union Res- 
ervoir (better known as Lake El- 

The students are very exicted 
about its growth. It is true, at one 
time, that the student senate 
pushed heavily to have it removed, 
but this request was soon with- 
drawn because the faculty and ad- 
ministration are so fond of it. They 
must be. Nothing has ever been 
done about it. Often, during a rain, 
maintenance crews have been seen 
in the middle of the mud and wa- 
ter, attempting to allow the water 
to drain, but students keep inter- 
rupting their work, pleading with 

them not to destroy the only natu - 
ral pond left on the new campus. 
The students then raise their pants 
legs (or whatever they have on at 
the time) and wade through the 
almost ankle -deep water. 

It is truly an asset to Union's 
campus to have such a facility as 
Lake Elliott. Rumor has it that the 
reservoir wil be stocked with cat- 
fish, bream, and crappie by mid- 
summer. We can only look for- 
ward to the excellent fishing that 
will be enjoyed by all. This attrac- 
tion will surely lure more students 
Union's way! Many students feel 
that such a lake should be dug at 
every entrance and exit of the 
school so that students must wade 
through the water. After all, forced 
participation in activities is Union's 
way of getting people involved. 

It is almost certain that now, 
with this new facility, the book- 
store will run a big sale on all their 
outdoor swimwear and lower its 
markup to only 500 9n for this sale 




Oprah Winfrey was born ar home in Kosci- 
usko, Mississippi, and she has become the hot ■ 
test thing in daytime talk-shows. "TV's Queen 
of talk" is described as "instinct barely slowed 
by preparation ". She is better at orchestration 
than interviewing; better at playing her guests 
against each other and the audience than at 
probing one -on -one. She has a mind as quick 
as any in television. In 1986. since the National 
syndication of her talk show, Winfrey has be- 
come the most endearing voice on television. 
Her show has become so popular that Phil 
Donahue must be wondering where he went 

Have you ever heard of a zerbert? If 
vou have, then you are probably a fan of 
The Cosby Show, the number one show 
for the last two years. The show's success 
has consequently brought back the pop- 
ularity of the family oriented situation - 
comedies such as Family Ties, Growing 
Pains, and Valarie. With Bill Cosby, a 
talented cast, excellent scripts, and be- 
lievable plots, you have little trouble see- 
ing why The Cosby Show is a smash hit. 
The major reason for the show's success 
however, is Bill Cosby himself He has an 
uncanny ability, through his intuition 
about human nature, to make us laugh at 
ourselves. In almost every episode, the 
show has something that you can relate 
to Your own family experiences that you 
can remember and wonder how you ever 
lived though it. 

The show centers around the Huxtable 
family, which includes the father (a gyne- 
cologist), a mother (a lawyer), and their 
five children. The show may be consid- 
ered a type of autobiography on Cosby 's 
life, considering he has five children in his 
real family. He says he even gets some of 
the shows material from his everyday 
family life. Maybe that is why the show is 
so captivating and hits so close to home. 

Commg on after the likes o/The Cosby Show 
couldn't hurt any show, but Family Ties doesn't 
leave any doubt that it's a hit on its own. This 
situation-comedy brings home some of the every- 
day realities of family life in a humorous and warm 
way. The show's star, Michael J. Fox, has become a 
household name while starring in two hit movies. 
His dry sense of humor and intellectual follies 
bring tons of laughs. Meredith Baxter Birney and 
Michael Gross portray the two parents who grew 
up as student protestors and demonstrators during 
the sixties. Their background adds a special twist to 
this eighties setting. These elements, along with a 
talented cast, make Family Ties a smash hit for the 
whole family. 

What television show has given us a hit sound- 
track album and has single-handedly spawned a 
whole new fashion trend.' If you answered Miami 
Vice, you would be right. Miami Vice, starring 
Don Johnson and Phillip Michael Thomas, has 
scored big with television audiences with a combi- 
nation of tough guy force and flashy smooth cool 
This show is obviously not your average cop show 
as it gives us the distinctive sights and sounds of 
the Miami beach and night life. Its two stars both 
skyrocketed to new stardom while launching suc-

Do Bears bear.' Do Bees bee? Does butter fly? Does a picket fence? 
Great googly moogly! If these phrases sound familiar, then you ha ve been 
watching the hit television show Moonlighting starring Sybil Shephard 
and Bruce Willis. This situation -comedy has vaulted to the top of the 
Neilson ratings with a combination of sassy wit and fast-paced action. 
While making its two stars household names. Moonlighting recasts the 
old war of the sexes into the snappiest, hottest comedy on the tube. This 
summer, the series swept up a record 16 Emmy nominations, more than 
any other show, including The Cosby Show. 

She has bit it big in two movies that areas different as 
day and night. One is a touching stot}' about n young 
woman who is victimized by male brutality und cventu- 
ally wins by finding herself in The Color Purple. The 
other is a comedy about a woman who worlcs in a bank 
and is contacted on her computer by a man in Europe 
who needs her help in Jumping Jack Flash. We are 
obviously talking about Whoopi Goldberg. No other 
actress has become so popular as quicidy while display- 
ing a talented array of styles. A 33 year-old New York 
native. Whoopi is a rising star on the entertainment 
horizon. She got her start in a one woman Broadway 
show where she was discovered by Steven Spielberg and 
then made her successful transition to movies. Whoopi 
Goldberg obviously has overwhelming talent which 
gives audiences a limitless supply of entertainment. 

Paul Hogan's "Crocodile Dundee" 
grabbed $8 million in it's First U.S. weekend. 
Mick "Crocodile" Dundee is a larger-than- 
life hero who, as legend has it, crawled miles 
thru the Australian outback to safety after 
being attacked by a crocodile. A female 
American reporter, hot for a story, follows 
htm through the rugged country and finds 
more than she bargained for. In tutn. Mick 
goes to explore her jungle — New York 
City. His run-in with pimps, hookers, and 
street punks turn out to be a bigger adven- 
ture than he expected, also. 

They were once called "T. V. 's answer to 
the Beatles", over 20 years ago. Today they 
are back in full swing! "Hey! Hey! We're the 
monkeys!" David Jones, Peter Tork, and 
Mickey Dolenz. In 1986. the Monkees hit a 
100-city comeback tour, playing their famil- 
iar tunes and performing their antique rou - 
tines to standing room only concert halls 
and screaming fans. 22 straight hours of the 
1966-68 "Monkee's Show" were aired on 
MTV. They are back and going strong! 

Star Trek /V — The Voyage Home. In 
the latest installment ofTV -turned -mov- 
ie series, the whole Enterprise gang, led 
by Admiral James Kirk ( Willi a m 
Shatner), journeyed back in time 300 
years to Star fleet's tirst home base, San 
Francisco, to save the planet earth from 
an Alien life form that had its beginnings 
in the 20th centurv. Leonard Nimoy, who 
starred in the movie as the Volcan- 
Spock. directed Star Trek IV as he did the 
third movie. The newest Film is said to be 
the closest so far in form and feeling to 
the original TV show. 

Bruce Springsteen once again moved to 
the top of the recording industry with his 
album "Bruce Springsteen and the E Street 
Band, Live 1975-83" The album was actually 
5 LP's with 40 songs and over 3 hours of 
music. It entered the charts by debuting in 
the No. 1 spot and going triple platinum on 
the very First day of release. The album was 
comprised of music from live concerts from 
the past 10 years. Once again "The Boss" has 
proved his immense popularity across the 

Top Gun is a young man's fantasy about 
jet fighter pilots, a beautiful blond flying 
instructor, and MiG's zapped at high alti- 
tudes. The hero is Maverick (Tom Cruise). 
The orphaned son of a disgraced Fighter 
pilot, he's got a chip on his shoulder the size 
of a 747. He's a rebel who won 't do things by 
the book. But he has more instinctive genius 
for Fying than anyone else in the U.S. Navy.

Whitney Houston . . . They say it's 
all in the genes. Her mother is gospel 
legend Cissy Houston; her cousin is 
Dionne Warwick, but the forrner 
model, 23, is doing it her way. Her 
debut album, with its sultry hit songs, 
has outsold any record by Aretha 
Franklin, Diana Ross, or Dionne. 
Whitney, you give good music! 

Although Madonna has never been accused of having 
morality as one of her strong points, her hit single "Papa 
don't preach" has made her extremely popular with the 
right-to-life organizations. The single rose to No. 1 on the 
charts and the album became a platinum success. Set to a 
snappy dance beat, the tune relates the plight of a young 
unmarried woman who turns to her father for love, support, 
and advice when she decides to go ahead and have her baby 
in spite of the consequences. The song points out the fact 
that somebody needs to help troubled girls with their painful 
decision to give life. Pro-choice forces criticized the song as 
"a unrealistic view of life. " 

The Bangles are an all-girl band 
who hit the charts big this past 
year. All four girls are from Los 
Angeles, California, and are in their 
mid-20's. The group was started by 
lead guitarist Vicki Peterson and 
her sister Debbi Peterson who 
plays the drums. Susannan Hoffs 
hooked up with the band after an- 
swering a classified ad by the Pe- 
tersons. Hoffs is lead vocalist and 
plays the guitar. After Michail 
Steele replaced the original bass 
player, the Bangles released their 
first big hit. Their next two songs 
have also been hits. If She Knew 
What She Wants hit high on the 
charts and Walk Like an Egyptian 
made it to number one.

Sonshine Puppets 

The Sonshine Puppets are very ap- 
propriately named. They provide a lot 
of entertainment and share the "Good 
News" through the medium of make- 
believe characters. The puppets break 
barriers between people that normally 
cannot be crossed. They also are able 
to express love in a unique way to 
those who will take a moment to lis- 
ten. Adults, as well as children, enjoy 
the performances which can be flashy 
and bold and at the same time carry a 
very simple, yet important message. 
Let them share the "Son"with you. 

At the very heart of life are two basic questions "Who am I.^" and "What shall I do.''" The 
degree to which a person is able to find satisfactory answers largely determines whether or 
not existence transcends its apparent absorbities and takes on the quality of a full and 
meaningful life. 

BSU aids in finding the answer to these questions by directing the student to his creator. 
Only by knowing Jesus Christ will a student begin to know himself BSU is about people and 
their relationship to Jesus. 

"Knowing Him and making Him known " is the BSU motto and we do this by providing 
two meetings a week. We have guest speakers, Bible studies, talent shows, and creative 

The BSU has an executive committee which is composed of the BSU director, Pres., Vice- 
Pres., and Secretary. The Executive Committee is the administrative part of the BSU. They are 
to lead by example and serve with love and commitment. 


One of our funniest experi- 
ences would ha ve to be the Asso - 
dated Acteen Convention. When 
we were asked to do this, we had 
the idea that we would be on a 
big stage in front of hundreds of 
screaming teen-age girls. When 
we got there, were we ever sur- 
prised! There were only about ten 
girls there. Even though the 
crowd was small, we had a won- 
derful time. 

The Title Impact reflects the 
purpose of their existence; the 
members hope to have an impact 
on those with which they share. 
Through their work they strive to 
express the need for Christ. A 
personal story about one of the 
many light-hearted moments 
shows a typical impact mishap. 

Bible Club 

The Backyard Bible Club consists of 15-20 
dedicated students who go out every sunny at 
3:00p.m. to an under priviledged housing com- 
munity to share Christ. Kids from every age 
meet at this time for an hour or two of fun. 
fellowship and Christian training. Many of these 
children have never heard of Jesus or the gospel; 
therefore, it's a challenge and a great responsi- 
bility to teach them. Many of these kids are 
poor and abused and need love . . . Love that 
Union students can give through Christ. 

Church Related 

CRV — Church Related Vocations is a program set up by the religious 
Affairs Office. CR V gives scholarships money and ptactical training to any 
student going into a Church related field. The CR V students meet once a month 
in a class which is designed for their field of ministry: ie.. Pastor. Missionary, 
Music Minister, Social/Ministry, Ministry of Education.

The Ministerial Associa- 
tion is a group composed of 
young men who strive to ex- 
pand their education 
through involvement with 
men in the ministry of Chris- 
tian service. They meet on a 
monthly basis to listen to 
different topics and discuss 
their views on the matters. 
The program pulls together 
the seasoned mentors and 
the young men in a con- 
structive atmosphere. The 
fellowship between the stu- 
dents and teachers is an en- 
riching experience — one 
that develops into fulfilling 
friendships. These friend- 
ships become a valuable 
commodity throughout their 
careers in the ministry. 


The Baptist Young Women is 
an auxiliary branch of the Tennes- 
see Women's Missionary Union. 
The BYW are responsible for 
training their members in an 
awareness of missions, both for- 
eign and home. BYW holds as a 
major importance the prayful sup- 
port of foreign missionaries. 

Go forth therefore and make all nations my disciples; baptize men 
everywhere in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy 
Spirit, and teach them to observe all that I have commanded you. 
And be assured. I am with you always, to the end of time. (Mat- 
thew 28: 19-20) 

Friendships are scarred quickly at Union. These friend- 
ships become very important to new freshmen. There is 
always someone to back you up. to support you and to 
guide you when help is needed. Even for those exciting 
and difficult times, it's nice to know that someone is 
there. No matter how big or small you are, a helping hand 
is always available. 

Union provides this unique atmosphere for its stu- 
dents, and allows them to grow in a supportive structure. 

Men's Dorm Council 

Who are the people responsible for 
making sure the men get the correct 
room assignment? Who checks the men 's 
rooms to see that they are liveable.'' Do 
you know the answer.-" It's the Men's - 
Dorm Council. 

For fun, they sponsored parties such as 
a pizza feast, the Christmas party and an 
election night bash, serving doughnuts 
and coffee while everyone anxiously 
watched the election returns.

The Physical Education Majors' Club was organized to provide 
an opportunity for students interested in the health, physical educa ■ 
don, recreation and sport professions to meet, plan and participate 
in activities that contribute to their professional growth and 

The school year consisted of various events including monthly 
meetings, state convention and assisting with the Special Olympics 
held on our campus in January. 


"Not just for athletes anymore" 

The Fellowship of Christian Athletes 
presents Christ to people who are influ- 
enced by athletics, as well as persons who 
are athletes. At Union, FCA meets every 
week for the purpose of fellowship and 
Bible Study. Special events such as a pizza 
feed, bonfire, banquet, and other activi- 
ties are directed to the whole student 
body. Special guest speakers and singers 
are brought in for these events, and many 
students are blessed. The theme for 
Union 's FCA this year expresses its desire 
to involve the entire student body. To 
stress its theme, the members have coined 
the name "Fellowship of Christian Any- 
bodies" because "FCA is not just for 
athletes anymore."

dents chosen by applicants and inter- 
views, is responsible for organizing many 
of the activities on Union's campus. The 
Council started this year with a weekend 
planning retreat to Birdsong. Creating 
and planning different activities taught 
the members teamwork and organiza-

plan the annual Christmas Party for both dorm com- 
plexes. Every year, the Dorm Council puts together a 

resident phone book, and updates the selection of 
games to make dorm life a little more comfortable and 
pleasant. The Dorm Council supports various activities 
on campus in which our girls actively participate such 
as All-Sing and Homecoming.

called into session on alternating Wednesday nights. 
It IS ruled by parliamentary procedure as outlined in 
Robert's Rules of Order. Robbie Graves. SGA Vice 
President, is presiding officer. The Student Senate is 
challenged with the responsibility of being the orga- 
nizational voice of the student body to the faculty 
and administration. If changes are needed in any 
aspect of the campus program, the Senate writes and 
votes on bills on the matter. Bills voted in are then 

channelled to the proper administrators for further 

This year's Senate has a different personality from 
chose in the past. It is the goal of this Senate to 
delegate responsibility to a larger number ot people, 
thereby gaining a broader opinion from the student 
body. The hope of the Senate is to make the stu - 
dent's stay at Union as pleasurable as possible. 

Good participation and attendance has abounded 
this year. Because meetings only last about 20 min-

The Student Government Association plays an ac- 
tive role at Union University. The SGA involves all 
organizations on campus through our Senate, which 
meets twice a month. The President's duties involve 
appointing committees, presiding over class meetings, 
and making personal appearances. The Vice-Presi- 
dent's main responsibility is planning for and presiding 
over the Senate meetings. The Secretary's duties in- 
clude taking minutes at Senate and working closely 
with the Vice-President in preparing for Senate. The 
Treasurer is active in providing entertainment for the 
Student Body, and in taking care of the financial 
matters. The Attorney General is involved in revising 
by-laws on a yearly basis and preparing and organizing 
school elections. One day, these leaders on campus 
will join other Union gradutes as leaders in govern- 
ment, industry and religion throughout the country.

The Torch is the only publi- 
cation which promotes student 
development in the arts. It is 
published annually only in the 
second semester and consists of 
poems, short stories, photo- 
graphs, paintings, original mu- 
sic and similar avenues of ex- 
pression in a 28 page booklet. 
The Torch committee is com- 
posed of 6 students from vari- 
ous disciplines and at various 
levels of college completion. 
This committee determines the 
content, layout, color size, and 
distribution ot works presented. 

The Torch originally began 
under the guidance of the Hon- 
ors Program, but since that time 
it has evolved into a self-sus- 
taining pubhcation under a fac- 
ulty sponsorship. At the present 
time only those members of the 
student committee remain. 
Three others will be added by 
February, 1987. 




According to Anna Hemp- 
stead Branch, "God wove a 
web of loveliness of clouds and 
stars and birds, but made not 
anything at all so beautiful as 
words." This quote accurately 
states the aim and purpose ot 
Union 's national English honor 
society. Sigma Tau Delta. 

Sigma Tau Delta promotes 
the mastery ot written expres- 
sion through encouraging cre- 
ativity and variety. All English 
majors, minors, and composite 
English/Journalism majors are 
welcome. If you 're interested in 
exquisite English expression, 
grab your pencil and paper, and 
"Get ready, i;et set. GO!" 

From a stringent discussion ot a series 
of Aristotle's works to building pyramids 
on the well-kept lawn of Chicago's his- 
toric Water Tower, the Honors Student 
Association members are involved in a 
wide variety of activities. HSA is com- 
posed ol students who have a genuine 
desire to learn and are interested in ex- 
panding their horizons. This goal ot ex- 
pansion is accomplished not only 
through stimulating class topics such as 
rock music and international controver- 
sies of the Southern Baptist Convention, 
but also through informal discussions 
stemming from a fast-paced game of 
"Scruples. " 

The Honors summer retreat was the 
beginning of the Honors experience for a 
large group of freshmen. At this retreat, 
new students met upperclassmen and 
faculty members who would later be- 
come dear friends and mentors. The 
mind -stretching study of Aristotle's Ni- 
comachean Ethics was the initial subject 
discussed in the Introduction Honors 

However, the highlight of the fall se- 
mester was the weekend trip to Chicago. 
One student might have enjoyed the Ba- 
hai House of Worship or the Holy Trinity 
Orthodox Cathedral, while another might 
have enjoyed the Art Institute of Chica- 
go. Even though each member might 
have preferred a different aspect of the 
trip, he now shares a sense of unity that 
reaches beyond the class room.

Alpha Chi is a national 
college scholarship honor 
society founded in Texas 
in 1922, whose member- 
ship is composed ot the 
top ten percent of the ju - 
nior and senior classes. 
The object of Alpha Chi 
is the promotion and rec- 
ognition of scholarship 
and of those elements ot 
character which make it 
effective among students. 

The name "Alpha Chi" 
is composed of the initial 
letters of the Greek 
words meaning "Truth" 
and "Character". Knowl- 
edge, the basis of Truth 
and Character, is symbol- 
ized bv gold and candle- 
light, and is reflected in 
the society's motto: "Ye 
shall know the truth, and 
the truth shall make you 
free." (John 8:32)

Psychology Club 

The unconscious, the conscious . . . the id, ego. and superego . . . the psychoanalytic 
theory . . . the psychological theories of child development. All of these concepts run 
wild through a psychology major's mind at some time or another. As a result, the student 
screams for help in distinguishing which is which. 

The Psychology Club acquaints its members with the field of psychology. It also 
attempts to develop a concern for man and his psychological needs in a professional way.

cated experiences of local attorneys, law 
school admissions directors, prominent local

Union offers many extra-curricular activities. 
Among those activities, the greek organizations 
play an important role. ( Yes. even a Christian 
school can have fraternities and sororities!) 
Union has five such organizations in which one 
can participate. Each group offers its own spe- 
cial qualities that add a little "spice" to student 

life at the univeristy. Greek life begins at Union, 
as It does at other colleges, with Rush Week. 
Appropriately named, Rush Week calls for 
meeting a lot of new faces and making a lot of 
decisions. Rush seems to be an impossible task, 
but somehow many freshman and transfers 
soon find a group to call brothers or sisters. 







Frdternities and sororities become a valuable 
part of many students' lives at Union. Not only 
do they provide good friends for the future, but 
they also provide wonderful memories ot the 

Serenading, candle-lights, all-sing, initiation 
rites, pinnings, and the bond achieved between 

big and little brothers and big and little sisters 
are all wonderful parrs of the total sum that we 
know as fraternities and sororities.

What is PRIDE? First, it can be defined as believing the gtoup can do no wrong and individual behavior will not reflect on the 
group as a whole Secondly, pride can be looked on as a sense of one's own dignity and self-worth, a delight in the satisfaction in 
one's own achievements and the achievements of othets. 

Ptide abounds in the Tennessee ETA chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon through our accomplishments, our beliefs, and our 
oursranding heritage. 

Pride in our accomplishmenrs. In the past few years, Tennessee ETA has had the largest number of new pledges including a great 
many upperclassmen. Along with our large and successful group of pledges, Tennessee ETA is proud of being intiimural champions 
for the past three years. Intellectual achievement also adds to our list of accomplishments by being the fraternity with rhe highest 
CPA for the past several years. PRIDE in our beliefs. Tennessee ETA is definitely proud, of our pledge system. Our period of 
pledging is a time for our pledges to learn of Tennessee ETA 's heritage and history, in conjunction with learning our mosr important 
belief "The True Gentleman." 

PRIDE in our outstanding heritage. Sigma Alpha Epsilon was founded on March 9, 18}6 at the University of Alabama. Our 
Tennessee ETA chaprer at Union was founded the following year on July 4, 1857 — making it the fifth chapter of Sigma Alpha 
Epsilon Our colors are royal purple and old gold. The official flower is the purple violet, and the lion is our mascot. 

We also take PRIDE in our Little Sisters of Minerva. This select group of young women are chosen through their deep inreresr, 
constant loyalty, and support to the men ot SAE.

If one ventures near the Zeta lodge during the first week in September, he is likely to hear feminine voices singing these words: 
"We call it fun but you might call ic madness . . . Stay here with us and you 11 forget your sadness. " The first week in September is 
rush week, and "MADNESS" has been a ZTA classic for many years. 

The Zeta Tau Alpha fraternity is the third largest sorority in the Panhellenic conference presently. A rich heritage stands behind 
Zeta Tau Alpha. The sisterhood was organized on Oaober 13. 1898 at Longwood College in Farmville. Virginia and has worked 
toward the goal of creating a more noble womanhood for almost a centur}: 

Zetas — as members of ZTA fraternity are commonly called — come in many different forms. Some sisters are varsity athletes 
while others are scholars Some are beauty queens while some are the girls next door. Despite their differences, they are bound 
together through their Zeta spirit. 

Zeta spirit has been especially evident in 1986-87. Rush week resulted in 45 new pledges, enabling the Zetas to reach quota. The 
Zetas. of course, believe that parries are an important pan of capturing college life. Banquet was held aboard the "Memphis Queen 
III. " making it excitable and enjoyable for all. For one date parry in the spring, each sister is set up with a blind dare by her little sister 
— fittingly called "Sprins Madness. " Zeta spirit is evident in intramural aaivities; they have been at the top for the past five years. 

"With a gold pin and pearls we are true-hearted girls and when we are gone, you will remember our song." As the classic Zeta 
tune "Madness" ends, so will college days But Zeta goals and Zeta memories will last a lifetime in the heart of ever}- ZTA.

When all members of Chi Omega are together, there are as many personalities and talents as there are 
instruments in a symphony orchestra. In a symphony, when you bring all the instruments together, the 
music it makes is a complex and harmonious melody that is beautiful music to its listeners. In Chi Omega, 
the symphony is a combination of "notes" that produce an everlasting sisterhood. 

Since 1895, the oldest national sorority has had a commitment to excellence for Greek women 
attending college. That has been the goal of the Upsilon Chapter of Chi Omega, since its establishment on 
Union's campus in 1924. Meeting their founders' challenge of excellence through producing campus 
leaders among its members has been Chi Omega's objective from the very beginning. This is evident 
through Upsilon 's winning of the scholarship trophy for the past 39 years. 

Each sister in the sorority — whether she is a pledge or an active — plays an equally important part in 
the challenge for excellence, forming new friendships that will last a hfetime. Sisterhood in Chi Omega 
puts the polish on the instruments so that all "notes" project a true -harmonious melody.

Chartered on December 5, 1964, Lambda Chi Alpha is Union 's newest fraternity. As the newest arrival. Lambda Chi Alpha 
brought with It new Ideas to the standard or stereotyped fraternity system. One of these Ideas is the concept of Associate 
Membership which replaces the old pledgeship system. It also brought with it the Idea that brotherhood is achieved not only 
through social activities but through the blending of individual personalities and service to the community and campus 

Lambda Chi Alpha bi-annually sponsors the largest collegiate blood drive in West Tennessee outside the Memphis area, 
lambda Chi also sponsors an annual faculty kidnap for World Hunger, a faculty reception, a sorority receprion, and a 
community food drive for needy families in the Jackson area. 

Lambda Chi Alpha also participates in campus events such as campus All-Sing in which they won second place with their 
performances of "I Am" and "New York, New York." 

Lambda Chi Alpha s colors are purple, green, and gold. Their flower is the white rose and their mascot is the mallard 
duck. The fraternity carries an open motto of "Ever}' man a man " which expresses their concern over each individual person 
and his contributions to society. 

Lambda Chi Alpha was founded in 1909 at Boston University Lambda Chi Alpha is the nation s third largest fraternity In 
number of members and in number of active chapters.

Panhellenic Council 

The Panhellenic Council, a body of 
delegates representing both sororities on 
Union 's campus, is an extension of the 
National Panhellenic Conference. The 
NPC provides a framework for all college 
Panhellenics, while each college Panhel- 
lenic works out the details of its own 
operation. Dr. Maggie Nell Brewer, the 
Panhellenic advisor, sees that Panhellenic 
policies are enforced, and is always will- 
ing to assist when needed. 

The Panhellenic Council establishes 
Rush rules, sees that they are implement- 
ed, and sets quota for the number of 
rushees allowed by each sorority. In con- 
junction with this, the Panhellenic Coun- 
cil hosts the first party of Rush, providing 
information to the rushees. 

Working together for the welfare of 
the Greek system and to unify all in- 
volved in Panhellenic's main objective. 

Interfraternity Council 

The Interfraternity Council is a group 
comprised of members from the three 
fraternities on Union's campus. Three 
delegates from each group comprised of 
the presidents and two other members 
make up the council. The council is re- 
sponsible for setting the regulations and 
rules for the rush weeks which take place 
at the beginning of each fall and spring 
semester. The council also acts as a gov- 
erning body in matters involving two or 
more fraternities. The gtoup works in 
conjunction with the school to see that 
any interfraternal problems are dealt with 
in the correct manner. 

This council is an outlet for the differ- 
ent groups to communicate important in - 
formation to each other in an efficient 
and orderly fashion, thereby allowing the 
fraternities to co-exist in a relatively calm

Fraternity Sweethearts 

Chosen as Lambda Chi Alpha 's Crescent 
Girl, Nancy Kathryn Atkeison is a senior 
from SomerviUe, Tennessee. Majoring in 
Secondary Education, she is an active mem- 
ber of Zeta Taa Alpha. 

Representing Sigma Alpha Epsilon, as 
Queen, Julie Ann Jones is a senior from 
Pinckneyville, Illinois. Elementary Education 
is her major and she is an active member of 
Zeta Tau Alpha. 

This year, representing her brothers in Alpha Tau Omega, 
Dawn Rachel Wilson is a senior from Memphis, Tennessee. 
She is majoring in Office Administration with a minor in 
Psychology and is active in Chi Omega and a member of the 
Student Foundation. 

Webster's dictionary tells us a 
SWEETHEART is "a loved one"; that 
is exactly what these three young la- 
dies are to their fraternities. With her 
endless support for her brothers and 
grace with which she represents her 
fraternity, a sweetheart embodies the 
true ideas, beliefs and spirit of her 
brothers. To be chosen as sweetheart 
is the highest honor that is presented 
to a little sister. 

Women In Red 

Mid-afternoon in early September; a light 
breeze rustles through the autumn colored trees, 
and the sound of movement comes from Fred 
Delay Gymnasium. Squeaks of sneakers, the 
sound of a bouncing ball, and the rattle of a 
am. common sounds coming from a gym, but 
in September? Football season is just getting 
started! Inside are a dozen or so young women 
and their coach, preparing for the upcoming 
season, still two months away. A stuffy gym. 
undesirable wind sprints, drill after drill, sweat: 
these all parts ot maintaining a tradition. The 
women's basketball program at Union has es- 
tablished itself as a powerhouse in the NAIA, 
and it takes a courageous breed to carry on the 
tradition. The call goes out, "Who wants to 
accept the challem^e.'" Enter the "Women in 
Red" ... 

. . . Only those who are serious about bas- 
ketball can become part of the select few. How- 
ever, being a part of one of the best programs in 
the country is not all glory. Many trials accom ■ 
pany the road to success. A certain amount of 
pressure is felt in every game to keep that win - 
ning edge. Also, if you have ever witnessed a 
David Blackstock practice, you would realize 
what true tribulation is. Coach Blackstock de- 
mands 110 percent, and gets it! It has paid off, 
though. The Lady Bulldogs were the leading 
scoring team in the nation this season. In early 
January they climbed as high . . . 

... 35 che third in the polls, 
and in mid -February chey were still 
holding onto fourth. At one point 
in the season, the Lady Bulldogs 
ranked fifth in shooting percent- 

At center is two-time All-Dis- 
trict player, Jackie Graham. Jackie 
holds the Union single-season 
field goal accuracy record (.595), 
and ranked eleventh nationally in 
field goal percentage in 1986. She 
capped this season by surpassing 
1500 career pts. In January, Jackie 
was named the NAIA Player of the 
Week. Charlotee Hart, two-time 
NAIA Ail-American and Confer- 
ence MVP, plays forward. Char- 
lotte, like Jackie, surpassed 1500 
career pts. this season. In her first 
two years as a Lady . . .

between him and the goal. Anticipation of another Airjett dunk 
fills the air. High fives, faces of disbelief and sheer amazement are 
recognizable all through the crowd as Jett finishes another "nasty" 
slam. Confidence stems from all sections of the gym as David 
Barham steps up to the free throw line. Like a doctor at work, 
David goes through his pre -shot rhythm; rhythm that consists of 
spinning the ball in the palms of his hands, allowing the ball to rest 
on his right thigh as he takes a couple of deep breaths, and a precise 
shot that nearly always finds the bottom of the net. Chants of 
"Iceman" fill the air after another successful trip to the line for 
David Barham. If anyone should be happy with the addition of the 
three point shot . . .

Dr. Naismith would not even be able 
to recognize this grand sport he originat- 
ed. Now -a -days, it has become common 
for men to be close to seven feet tall. The 
slam -dunk has added another dimension 
to the game, and now there is the three 
point shot. Originally, the line was mea - 
sured from the middle of the basket and 
reached 19ft. 9in. Now the rule has been 
rewritten to measure the shot from the 
backboard. The rule now reads that a 
three point shot is one of 21ft. or more. It 
makes no difference from where the line 
is measured, it still counts three points, 
and is here to stay. 

Attending a Bulldog basketball game 
adds excitement to student life at Union. 
Screams of "Smooth " and "We love you. 
Willie" echo through the student section 
as Willie Holland jukes an opposing team 
player and lofts up another three pointer.

This Is Bulldog Country 

Baseball — America's sport. Father's 
statt their sons at an early age playing 
baseball. They show them the fundamen- 
tals of hitting, pitching, and catching, 
hoping to see their sons playing major 
league baseball in futute years. Many col- 
leges foster professional careers. Union 
University has proven to be one of the best 
colleges at which to play baseball. With a 
third place NAIA national ranking in 1983, 
and a thirteenth place ranking in 198}, 
Bulldog Baseball has drawn national at- 
tention. Still tiding on that highly regarded 
reputation, the Bulldogs enter into a 
ptomising 1986-87 season. 

Coach Bill Green's Bulldogs finished 
the 1983-86 season with a 26-13 record. 
Just missing the district toutnament by one 
game. After the spring term, many of the 
Bulldog players participated in summet 
league baseball in different areas across the 
Southeast. With improved talents and 
abilities, the ream regrouped in September 
fot an impressive tall season. By using 
domineering pitching and hitting, the 
Bulldogs posted a 21-2 record. A couple 
of the reasons for the Bulldog's success 
wete the overpowering pitching of new- 
comer Cano Velez from Puerto Rico, and 
the long-ball hitting of junior college 
ttansfer Carson Mclllwain. 

As the Bulldogs were beginning their 
season, the majot leaguers were bringing 
theirs to a close. Ptobably one of the most 
surprising events this year was the signing 
of Bo Jackson to a ptofessional baseball 
career with the Kansas City Royals. Jack- 
son, the Heisman Ttophy Winner, tutned 
down a ptomising career in the NFL to 
play baseball. Jackson said, "I have my 
trophy for football, " and signed a $200,000 
contract instead of a $2,000,000 contract.

The Bulldog 

Coach Bill Green, beginning his 
second year as the skipper of the Bull- 
dog Baseball team, has only high 
praises for this year's squad. Trying to 
improve on last year's record, (which 
included a victory over NCAA power- 
house Mississippi State), Coach Green 
takes his winning reputation into the 
1986-87 season. The two-time VSAC 
Coach of the Year feels that he has 
more talent on the team this year than 
last. He has set high expectations for 
this year's team, and plans for his 
Bulldogs to host the 1987 TCAC Dis- 
trict Tournament. To play host for 
this tournament, the Bulldogs would 
have to win the TCAC. a feat that 
Bulldog fans would be more than 
happy to witness. Coach Green says, 
"Anything beyond the TCAC Tourna- 
ment will be icing on the cake!" With 
Coach Bill Green's winning reputa- 
tion, and the Bulldogs winning tradi- 
tion, we may see plenty of "icing" this 




Bo 's first major league stop was in Mem ■ 
phis where he played with the Memphis 
Chick s. There he batted as low as .074, until 
finally he hit a line drive that traveled over 500 
ft. fot a grand slam home ran. With power 
and speed. Bo Jackson may have a future in 
the Major Leagues. 

Probably the only race that was close this 
year in professional baseball was the race for 
the batting title, where Wade Boggs edged 
out Don Mattingly in the last few games of 
the season. In the NL East, the New York 
Mets jumped out of the starting blocks early, 
never looked back, and won more games than 
any team in the history of the game. After the 
All-Star break, the Houston Astros took a 
commanding lead in the NL West and cruised 
to the pennant. The Boston Red Sox may have 
stumbled slightly after the break, but regained 
their composure in time to win the AL East. 
Out on the west coast. Gene Autry's Califor- 
nia Angels took a trip to Wally World, and 
won the AL West. 

The American League and National League 
Championship Series proved to be two of the 
most bizarre ever Late game rallies, extra in- 
nings and game winning homeruns filled al- 
most every game. The Boston Red Sox, down 
to their last strike of the American League 
Series in game six, rallied to win the Series in 
seven games.

The New York Mets may ha ve struggled in the 
National League Series, but were still able co finish 
the Astros in six games. What a match up! Boston 
against New York!! Roger Clemens against Dwight 
Gooden! What more could one want? Just as Bos- 
ton had been down to their last strike in the AL 
Championship Series, they had the Mets down to 
their last strike of the season. Yogi Berra once said, 
"It ain't over 'til its over", and he was right. Ray 
Knight, the Series eventual MVP. singled to center 
scoring Gary Carter, and closed the BoSox lead to 
3-4. A wild pitch scored Kevin Mitchell from third. 
The game was tied. Mookie Wilson with a 3-2 
count, hit a soft-hopper down the first base line, 
through Bill Buckner's legs, and Ray Knight scored 
to win the game. The Mets went on to win game 
seven and the World Series. 

In February, the Bulldogs will begin the long 
road that ends in Lewiston. Idaho, with the NAIA 
World Series. That road will take the Bulldogs away 
from the friendly confines of the Union University' 
field, and into other parts ot Tennessee. Mississippi, 
Alabama, and Florida. The Bulldogs carry with 
them a winning tradition chat opposing teams will 
be wanting to defeat. In May rhe Bulldog's season 
will draw to a close. The dreams and hopes that 
were established in the fall will either be realities or 
disappointments. It will all rest on that last pitch, 
and remember. "It ain't over 'til its over!"

Lady 'Love' 

The days ot ladies wearing 
long dresses on the tennis 
courts are gone. Competition 
is the name of the game now. 
Long, hot days in the sun, 
preparing for upcoming tour- 
naments: intense matches on 
humid Saturday afternoons; 
this is what women's tennis 
has evolved into. Freshmen 
star, Jessica Navarro, from 
Bolivia, South America, has 
already made her presence 
known at Union. She won 
three local tournaments in the 
fall, placed second out of a 
field of 31 in the Sewanee In- 
door Invitational Tournament, 
and with her partner, Stacie 
Whaley, won the doubles. 

Maybe Martina is ranked 
no. 1 in the world, but one 
thing is definite, every after- 
noon you can find Coach 
Williams and her tennis team 
on the courts preparing for 
their next challenge.

Just as women's tennis has

People from all walks of life 
have grown to enjoy tennis. 
The Beckers, Connors and 
McEnroes of the world have 
made this game interesting to 

This year's team at Union is 
centered around academic 
All-American Gunnar Adal- 
berth. Gunnar achieved na- 
tional ranking at the end of 
last year by reaching the semi- 
fmals of the conference tour- 
nament, and by defeating one 
of the top five collegiate play - 
ers in the nation. Gunnar has 
already reached national rank- 
ing this year. 

The team's schedule con-

Union Linksters 

Golf, a legendar) Scottish game, has for years been an American 
pasttime. Though the media, names like Ben Hogan. Arnold Palmer, Jack 
Nicholas, and Gicg Norman, have become household words. What other 
sport would name a tournament — The Masters.'' Where else would you 
hear terms like birdies, bogeys, eagles, and fore, but on a golf course.-' Golf 
also has brought recognition to Union University. 

Coach Don Morris matched his Linksters with several Division M 
schools, and they played up to par, or even "birdie". This fall, in the 
Goodyear Tournament in Union City, TN, a tournament which Union 
University hosted, the golf team finished fifth out of fourteen teams. 
Finishing tenth out of a field of thirty-one teams at the Hart Tournament 
in Culman, AL, pleased Coach Morris. With tesults like these. Coach Don 
Morris and the Union University golf team has set their sights on the 
National Tournament. 

This team will practice for hours preparing for next Spring's season. 
Shag ball after shag ball will be hit. Putts, drives, and chips will be 
perfected. Maybe some of these guys will go on to professional careers.

The 1986-87 Union University cheerlead- 
ers were forced Co work especially hard this 
year. The squad was not officially chosen 
until the end of September. The delay was 
caused by the resignation at last year's 
squad. The squad prepared all summer and 
fall for the season, and then the NAIA put 
stipulations on the stunts cheerleaders could 
perform. This ruling was so frustrating chat 
the squad was not compelled to return. This 
departure produced a need for an entirely 
new group 

The new cheerleaders worked long, late 
nights preparing for the season opener at 
Bethel College. They dedicated their time 
and energy to being the best they could be. 
Ms. Nancy Ross, the new sponsor, has only 
high praises for her group. Through the 
winter and into the spring, the cheerleaders 
will cheer our Bulldogs on to victor)'. Gooo 
dawgs! sic 'em! woof! woof! woof! will 
forever fill the air. 

Amateurs At Work 

It has been said that the intramural 
courts, fields, and tracks are the only 
places where the true amateurs still 
exist. Intramural athletes are not paid 
for their abilities. The only reward 
they can hope to obtain is the thrill of 
victory. For this reason intramural 
athletes have been titled "Professional 

Union offers a wide variety of in- 
tramural sports. This variety ranges 
from the finesse and precision offris- 
beegolfto the strength and challenge 
of (lag football. Mix this variety with 
the competitive spirit of the Greeks, 
Independents, and the BSU, and there 
is a place for everyone. No qualifica - 
tions exist for intramural sports. All 
that is needed is a desire to participate. 

Whoever said intramurals are all 
fun and games needs to witness our 
program. Rarely does anyone lea ve the 

football field without a bruise, cut, or scrape of some 
kind. Some injuries sustained are worse than others. 
Women, as well as men, jam fmgers, sprain ankles, and ■ 
twist knees. The official "non-contact" sport of bas- 
ketball takes on a new dimension inside the campus 
gyms. Sometimes it seems as though the object of the 
game has changed from trying to score the most 
points to acquiring the most fouls. Although these 
facts may be true, just ask anyone who has participat - 
ed in an intramural event it they have any regrets, and 
their answer will be "no". 

Many of these athletes are former high school 
stand-outs who just can't let go of their addiction to 
sports. Many others participate to relieve the pressures 
of college. Somewhere in this conglomeration of 
competitive reasons is blended a vital aspect ot Union 
University. Union intramurals represent a refuge where 
former stars still shine bright and future stars prepare 
for lite. ^__

Union's Interim 

Dr. Hyran Barefoot 

"I've known Dr. Barefoot for 30 years and the thing that impresses 
we the most is that he is a man of absolute — unquestionable integrity. 
He is just who he is, no shams. " — Mr. Bob Elliott 

Many of you may have seen "the man behind the bow tie" but have 
never given it much thought as to what kind of man he really is. This 
man has been walking Union 's hallways for a total of 28 years. His 
name? Dr. Hyran Barefoot. He is the Vice-President of Academic 
Affairs and right now he holds another title, that of "Interim President 
of Union University". However, there is a side to this man that we as 
students do not often get a chance to see. He is a lover and restorer of 
antique furniture. Two refinisbed tables in his office are examples of 
his skill. The past W years he has spent his summer vacations working 
on his 80 year old home on Campobello Island in New Brunswick, 

"What I recall most about Dr. Barefoot is a story he told about an 
old Canadian Fisherman riding with him in his boat. When the 
outboard motor died the old fisherman made comment that anyone 
else would sink the boat, but Dr. Barefoot would instead sell it as an 
antique and make $200 from it!" — Dr. Ernest Pinson 

Married in 1949, he has i daughters and 6 "fabulous" grandchildren 
who are his pride and joy! When asked about his grandchildren he 
quickly replied, "having grandkids was better than becoming a father! 
Had I known that grandkids were that great, I would have had them 
first!" In his office he proudly displays what he calls his "Grandkid's 
Corner. " On his desk is a framed crayoned picture with a special 
message to "Papaw". 

"There is a joke that comes to mind about a man who boarded a 
bus and asked the gentleman seated by himself in the first seat if he 
had any grandchildren. The gentleman answered "yes". The man 
proceeded to the next four rows with the same question, each time 
receiving the answer, "yes". Finally when the man reached the sixth 
row and asked the gentleman if he had any grandchildren, the gentle- 
man answered "No, I do not". The man excitedly replied, "Good! 
Scoot over and let me tell you about mine!" As I see it, that man had 
to have been Dr. Hyran Barefoot!" — Dr. John Adams 

Having a Doctorate in Theology from New Orleans Seminary, he 
states that his favorite place is in the class room — teaching. He loves 
the one on one experience with bis students. "I find that teaching is 
more satisfying than administration." He loved teaching Philosophy 
and Religion and continues to teach one class a semester of Greek. 
As for his bow ties — he says he has about twenty of them. "I used 
to wear them a long time ago. I stopped for a number of years, then 
picked it back up again about a year ago after finding some hanging in 
my closet, " And no. they are not clip-on; like Dr. Barefoot, they are 
the "real McCoys. " 

"Last year as Chairman of the Faculty Forum, I was amazed that no 
matter how many times I went to Dr. Barefoot he was always willing 
to take the time to listen, discuss, and follow through on faculty 
concerns. I admire him as a man of great integrity and consistency!" — 
Dr. Louise Bentley 

"And we know that all things work together lor 
good to them that love God. to them who are the 
called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28

For a university to operate efficiently, important decisons must be made. Decisions concerning student life, religious matters, 
business, and development require strong, effective administrators. The needs of Union must be considered not only for the present, 
but also for the future. 

As Vice President for Religious Affairs, Dr. John Adams is in charge of planning and programming all religious activities such as 
required chapel exercises. Religious Emphasis Weeks, dorm devotions, and weekend revival teams. 

Dr. Brewer, as Vice President for Student Affairs, is responsible for the operation of the Student Affaits Department, which 
includes any event which affects student life. Some responsibilities include working with housing directors to coordinate housing, 
supervising all organizations and activities, and serving as chief judicial officer for student discipline. 

Balancing Union 's budget, supervising the Staff Petsonnel, and handling the business portion of student accounts are only a few 
of the issues that Mr. Elliot must confront as Union 's Vice President for Business Affairs. 

Mr. Stewatt is responsible for supervising the areas of student recruitment, public relations, and most importantly — scholarship 

These four people, when put together, keep Union functioning both efficiently and effectively.

When Union students have problems or need answers Co questions concerning academic life, most of them will head 
for the academic center. Upon entering, the student will find Jane Nichols, "The Lady With Diplomas m Her Hand, 
who is responsible for the junior and senior ratings and evaluations. This information along with student academic 
histories and more are kept on the 20,000 microfilm records that are under the control of Dr. James Baggett. Moving 
from Self -Study Director, Dr. Baggett is serving his first year as Vice President of Academic Affairs. He oversees class 
registration, the dropping of classes, withdrawals, students' academic standings, and mid -term and final grades. Mts. 
Sandra Hathcox is serving her second year as Union 's Guidance and Retention counselor; a position created only two 
years ago. If a student is having any academic or social difficulties, then Mrs. Hathcox s door is always open. Even if 
things seem to be going just great, a student never knows when they will be called into her office, whether it be for 
poor academic performance or the withdrawl ftom Union altogether. Just remember, "The Academic Center is 
watching YOU!"

Have you ever wondered where the money for 
scholarships comes from or how Union receives its 
support or who takes care of student recruitment and 
public relations? All of these activities and more are 
handled by the Department of Development. This 
department is responsible for the future of Union 
University. A major goal for the Department was met 
December 31 — the ten Million dollar endowment 
fund. Only the interest on this money is used, provid- 
ing the college with a strong, constant base of support 
for scholarships and other fmancial needs. The Devel- 
opment department's goals are to provide its students 
with the lowest tuition of all Baptist universities in the 
State of Tennessee, and to remain fifth lowest in 
tuition of all Baptist universities in the United States. 
It also plans to raise as much money as possible for 
scholarships, the essential base for most students at- 
tending Baptist universities. 

The Director of Denominational Support is in 
charge of informing pastors and churches about the 
organizations and activities at Union. 

The alumni of U. U. are as important to Union as 
students. The Director of Alumni Affairs plans events 
for enjoyment of yesterday's students. This year the 
alumni took part in a riverboat cruise in Memphis. The 
theme of the cruise was "RoUin ' on the River" in 
which 239 Alumni took part. Some alumni also partic- 
ipated in a trip to Canada -The Fall Foliage Tour.

The Department of Student Affairs at Union assists students in various and 

important ways. Students can be assisted with things ranging from financial to 
roommate problems. The placement service is a service designed to help Union 
graduates achieve full time employment. The housing director's are always ready 
to help students with roommate problems or apartment problems. Activities 
directors plan things such as skating parties, movies, and even concerts. Student 
Affairs make students top priority in every endeavor. 

Religious Activities 

Since the college is committed to the spiritual as well as the academic and social 
development of individuals, a strong emphasis upon religious life and activities is 
evident on Union's campus. The religious life and activities at Union are designed to 
accomplish two things: to minister to the spiritual needs of individuals and to provide 
individuals opportunities for Christian service. Activities which minister to the spiritual 
needs are chapel exercises, religious emphasis weeks, which are held twice each year. 
Other activities include revival teams and various social ministries. 

There is never a dull moment to be found in the Religious Affairs office! Students 
stop by constantly to say "hello" to Rose and Dr. Adams (Dr. J) or "hanging out" and 
teasing Richard about his hair (or of that he no longer has.) All in all, its a warm 
friendly place with Loads of Love!

adds to its effectiveness by showing prospective students the 
campus and its facilities. Admission counselors attend career 
days at high schools to give students information on Union 
and its programs. Carroll Griffin is always there making 
people laugh — if you are wondering how he does it — take 
a look at him. Ms. Lamben, Mrs. Robinson are always 
organizing meetings and taking care of all those necessary

The Business Office. For faculty, a place of monetary

almost always busy assisting them in various ways with 
their financial matters. From cashing checks (if we have 
any), assisting in the signing of TSAC and student loan 
checks to adding an interest charge to our delinquent 
student bill. It's a tough job but someone has to do it and 

we are all very thankful for all the assistance they have 
given out to all. 

Mutual feelings are shared by all who work in the 
Business Office: "We in the Business Office do a variety 
of things. We talk, we laugh, we smile and sometimes we 
even sing. Contrary to popular belief, we really, really try 
to give you the best of service and give it with a smile. "

The rush is on!! In college services there is 
never a dull moment whether it be working on a 
mail out that needed to be mailed two days ago, 
printing tickets for an upcoming concert, or 
typing Dr Jones' Old Testament Final. College 
Services is the "backbone of the school" — 
performing services for the faculty, administra- 
tion, and staff such as word processing, typing 
offset printing, mailing outgoing mail, and tele- 
phone dictation transcribing. Their goal is to 
process paper work in a faster, more efficient 
and professional manner. 

When walking into College Services the first

down to it, the library can be a place of main social gathering (oops! Studying that is!!) especially right before exams. 

Being the central facet of Union 's Learning Resource Center, the library serves as an information and study center 
for on-campus students and those students off-campus as well. The facility has undergone many changes under the 
direction of Mr. Robertson, including the conversion of 400 periodicals to microfiche. And many more changes 
planned for the future to make room for an audio -visual, production/designer room. To coincide with this, TV 
monitors and players would be placed in the listening room, and groups of up to ten could view tapes in the microfilm

the Associate Vice-President of Academic Affairs to 
coordinate curriculum and class scheduling. The aca - 
demic departments are divided into five schools: Fine 
Arts, Humanities, Natural and Behavioral Sciences,

Have you ever wanted to speak and be able to understand 
a different language or find out about other cultures other 
than your own? Union 's Department of Languages can allow 
you to do just that. Majors can be achieved in both French 
and Spanish. Here the student can gain a considerable profi- 
ciency in the use and understanding of the culture ot those 
who speak the language and possibly travel abroad in help- 
ing with the study of their particular major. A minor can be 
achieved in Greek, which helps many students develop the 
basic skills for understanding and interpreting the Greek 
New Testament. And, to the few die-hards that take one or 
both of the German courses offered, "Guten tag."

Exercising the mind and the spirit through the

creative expression of both conceptual and perceptual 
types within the context of the Christian community. 

The challenge of coordinating the hand, eye, and

When one first encounters the music hall at Union, 
one meets several unusual and interesting sights and 
sounds. At one end of the music hall is Don Johnson 
(alias Dr. Hartley in his cream jacket), while at the 
other end sits a crowd of music hall "couch potatoes" 
(alias music majors acting like they're not busy). The 
backdrop for the "couch potato "/actors was once a 
large depressionistic painting of a much older Mr. 
Huffman but has now been replaced by a labyrinth 
that Rick Osborne is still trying to find his way 
through (Dr. Blass provides him with yellow post-it 
notes to mark his place.) If one decides to watch this 
"couch potato" show, one should be sure to go before 
10p.m. or the "monster" jungle plant will attack. Also 
beware of Tony Jones' locker as it has been known to 
fly open and spew forth books, music, etc. (especially 
etc.). If one decides to take a noonday stroll down this 
hall, football pads and helmet are in order as all the 
music students and faculty rush to see Dr. Blass's 
newly posted "Far Side" (and it's flip side). Another 
familiar sight is that of Felix the Cat posters courtesy 
of Carroll Griffin. 

The sounds are much prettier and a lot less unusual 
(sometimes). The "big" sounds from the large ensem- 
bles of Chorus, Union Singers, Band, Stage Band, and 
Piano Ensemble contrasts with the smaller ensembles 
of Proclamation, Covenant, and Chamber Singers.

The Religion and Philosophy departments aim for the goal of helping students better understand and 
appreciate the Bible as the sacred literature of the Christian faith. The Religion department helps students 
prepare for the pastorate and other church related vocations. Major philosophical interpretations of the meaning 
of reality and life are also explored through these departments. Students who are striving to meet their major or 
minor requirements in these areas find it tough, bat they are rewarded ten -fold with the knowledge of Biblical, 
historical, and theological issues and viewpoints.

The history department at Union has been 
making history of its own the past ten years.

Have you ever said to yourself, "I'm losing it," or "I'm going crazy"? Well if that's the case, don't worry 
you 're just like the rest of us: NORMAL. What the Psychology department does is not only interpret 
psychological disorders, but tries to gain a better understanding of abnormal behavior. Students can 
receive a major or minor in Psychology or a teacher's certification in the area of Psychology. Courses are 
designed to survey various areas in the field of Psychology, enabling students to gain the knowledge and 
understanding of human relations. Faculty try to apply concepts of individual adjustment to the learning 
of prominent theories in the development of personalities. Classes are not only designed as a learning 
experience but also are a place and source of understanding one's self. As Dr. "Vickery says, "Teaching to 
me is play and I think everyone should play. " 


The Sociology Department's courses are designed to present both a practical and a 
scientific analysis of human relationships in the various areas of social life. These 
courses not only prepare the student for job opportunities but also teach them to deal 
with daily problems. "I want to be approachable inside and outside of class. I want to 
be a broad role model. I enjoy working here at Union. Sociology is to provide an

head swivels. He has a 
change in sound detector as 
well as a light level indicator 
and a distance indicator. 
Hero can also talk and even 
sing! A practical application 
for Hero would be as a se- 
curity guard. A program can 
be written which links He- 
ro's ability to detect changes 
in sound with his ability to 
talk and move . . .

Interested in trivia? How many students were enrolled in 1962's nursing class? Don r have any 
idea? Well, Union University began it's nursing program in 1962 with 34 students enrolled. 
Because the program has grown to the point of accepting a maximum of 100 students each fall, 
many nursing hopefuls have to be turned away until the following year. 

The Union University School of Nursing is dedicated to improving nursing health care. 
Nursing Instructors assist students in caring for the total needs of the patient. This includes basic 
communication between the nurse and patient to caring for the critically ill patient. General 
education courses and nursing education courses on Union 's Campus are combined with patient 
care experiences in hospitals and health agencies in Madison County.

Student nurses get plenty of "hands-on " experience and many chances for valuable educational observation experiences. 
Union works closely with Jackson -Madison County General Hospital, Western State Mental Health Center, Jackson Dialysis 
Clinic, The CP Center, and many, many more. 

Nursing students practice their technical skills in the fully stocked lab center located on Union 's campus. 

96% of those finishing Union 's Associate of Science in Nursing program per year have passed the State Nursing Boards. 

The Baccalaureate Degree Programs allows ASN graduates to expand their education to prepare for leadership and 
management roles in professional nursing.

A freshman's thoughts are 
often scrambled. We come to 
school looking for and expect- 
ing so much. We feel so grown 
up. Then we get a little taste of 
the real world and what we're 
someday going to face. 
Through all these mixed up 
emotions, I'm thankful chat my 
God loves me and that no mat- 
ter how I feel, he is there to take 
me by the hand and guide me

Who are these new faces.'' Why do 
they suddenly know everyone and I 
don't.'' When is chapel.'' Is it required.'' 
Should I go Greek? Which organization 
should I join.> When do I study.' When 
do I sleep.' 

These are just a few of the questions 
that freshmen ask when they first arrive at 
Union. Some of these questions are 
quickly and easily answered. Some how- 
ever, take longer and can only be an- 
swered by each student. Answering these 
questions is only a part of adjusting to 
college life.

For many Freshmen their college life 
began with Freshman Orientation and 
Retreat. This was the weekend that the 
newest arrivals to our campus moved into 
their dorms, met with their faculty advi- 
sors and planned their class schedules. 
The next day included such events as: an 
activities center orientation, a freshman 
cookout at the activities center, and final- 
ly a residence complex orientation. This 
retreat gave the freshmen an opportunity 
to get acquainted and to make new

The Freshmen must face 
many decisions chis firsc 
year, bur they have already 
made one imporranr deci- 
sion . . . the choice of a 
college. Finding a college is 
not always an easy task, but 
a worthwhile one. A person 
must find an institution that 
has a comfortable atmo- 
sphere and provides a quali- 
ty education which helps 
them reach their personal 
and professional goals. But, 
it is also important to find a 
university that enhances the 
social aspects of college life 
through various activities 
and functions. We hope that 
this year's freshman class 
has found that they have 
made the right choice in 
coming CO Union!

This year's freshmen arrived just in 
time for the new look of the cafeteria. 
The renovations made things easier and 
the lines move faster, but there are still 
those small problems that arise. 

The freshmen learn very quickly to 
take advantage of the Student Activities 
Center. This is the place students relax 
and find recreation to relieve the tension 
of classes and studies.

Rush is i very tense and exciting time for 
the freshmen who chose to participate in it. 
For many this is a time to get to know the 
upperclassmen through the various parties 
and activities. This is also the time to make 
some very important decisions. 

These decisions are important because not 
only do they affect the next four years, but 
the entire life of the student. It is very impor- 
tant for each student to go through the week 
with an open mind and to make sure he or 
she finds the Greek organization that best 
fits their personality. Judging by this year's 
rush, a lot of freshmen made some very right

When I first came to Union I didn 't think I would like it bur I was very 
wrong. Even though I've only been here for a short time, I have already grown to 
love Union. Being a small school, it allows you to get to know more people 
faster. I have already made many friends and I know that I will make many more. 
There is such a friendly atmosphere, I really feel at home. I know that I will grow 
in many ways during my stay here and I am very much looking forward to the 
many good times that are in my future. Not only will Union give me friends and 
good times, but it will give me a good education to help me make it in life after 
college. — Tonya Merrick 

I chose Union because it is a small Christian School offering a personal 
atmosphere. The friendliness of the faculty and students is clearly evident in the 
way they present themselves. I can see that Union University was the wise 
choice! — Cara Beth Clements 

A freshman's life is filled with hectic 
schedules, new faces, and extracurricular ac- 
tivities. On Union's campus freshman are 
spotted quite easily (especially in the com - 
mons.) Washing your own clothes, cleaning 
your room and attending all your chapels are 
a few of the adjustments a freshman is urged 
to fulfill. Most freshman greet college with 
high expectations. Their well planned expec- 
tations are soon squandered by the "distort- 
ed" world of reality. They find that college is 
a maturing period as much as a learning 
experience. And as always (since colleges 
have existed) freshman survive year after 
year and eventually grow up to be sopho- 
mores, juniors, and finally the goal of col- 
lege — the graduating senior. So freshman 
— hang on, there are greater vistas in your

After a year of adjustment, the 
sophomore class returned to Union 
for their second year of college. This 
time they knew the faces, and the 
places, and what to do. They have 
learned the importance of such things 
as studying, chapel attendance, and 
getting plenty of sleep. They also 
know the importance of those late 
night trips to get that midnight snack, 
those special events, those all impor- 
tant late night rap sessions, and those 
ever present pranks. The sophomores, 
however, have not yet learned how to 
juggle all of these overlapping events 
— but they're working on it.

Union is specisil Co me because 
of the friendships chat I've made 
here. Education is very imponanc, 
but when I look back in later years 
its the friends I made that I'll re- 
member most. I know that these 
friendships will last long after I've 
left Union. When I decided to 
come to Union, I had no idea how 
much it would come to mean to 
me. Union offers a personal, Chris-

Being a sophomore who has transferred 
away from Union and back again, I realize 
how much more Union has Co offer than 
other colleges and universities. The reasons 
that led me to choose Union as a freshman, 
are the same reasons that brought me back: 
— "academically sound and unapologetical- 
ly Christian. " I feel chat the warm and friend- 
ly acmosphere and academic program at 
Union can be matched by no other educa- 
tional institution. 

Julie Alderson 

After that freshmen year of adjustment the sophomore 
knows the importance of those hours of study. But they 
have a watchful eye for those wonderful little distractions. 
Obviously the sophomores still have the problem of dedi- 
cating themselves to those books.

I believe that Union an prepare me for 
my future and enable me to meet the goals 
that I have set for myself More importantly, 
however, I believe that Union can prepare 
me to face the challenges of living in a world 
that does not share my love for and com- 
mittment to Christ.

/ chose Union for many reasons. The 
main reason was because it is a Christian 
college. I wanted to go to a school that 
supported Jesus Christ and wasn't ashamed 
to proclaim His name. The great academic 
program here at Union impressed me also. 
The campus is smaller than other schools 
which allows for more personable attention 
from teachers and closeness of the students. 
Union is also close to my hometown. I chose 
Union for these reasons and Tve found all of 
these traits and more. 

Tammie Bonee 

I think the most interesting thing about 
Union is that It is small enough that you can 
get to know everyone on the campus.

Union is a college 
where my Christian life 
can be enhanced while 
acquiring a quality edu- 
cation. The atmosphere 
makes it easier to keep 
my Christian committ-

bring a new challenge to 
the classroom everyday. I 
know when I graduate I 
will look back and say 
"thanks." Thanks to 
Union for being commit -

After touring a pro- 
spective student on Cam - 
pus Day, she pulled me 
aside and with a 
smile, she said, "Union 
really is full of love. I can 
tell that just by the way 
everyone knows and 
speaks to you." In my 
opinion she hit the nail 
on the head. Union is full 
of love . . .

. . . There seems to be 
a special bond unking 
students, faculty, and 
staff. Maybe it is because 
of the strong Christian 
influence on out campus. 
Because Union is a 
Christian institution, we 
have many opportunities 
to grow spiritually. I'm so 
glad I've been given the 
opportunity to attend a 
Christian college . . .

fall short, but at Union I 
have so many Christian

tian friends and instruc- 
tors has helped me realize 
the importance ot finding 
time for God. 

It is nearly impossible 
to express what Union

know that in years to

more reasons why Union 
is important to me. For

Union has truly become

CO college was not an 
easy one. My first day at 
Union was Filled with re- 
hctence. doubt, and fear. 
That was three years ago! 
Today Union has a spe- 
cial place in my heart. 
The memories and 
friendships that fve made 
will last me thoughout 
my life. I am proud to 
attend an University that 
proclaims the name of 
Jesus Christ! Union has 
made some shattered 
dreams turn into reality! 
And the friends I have

'til graduation day! Four years of 
studying constantly — well, a couple 
of hours a day — well, maybe cram- 
ming before every exam. No more 
though! . . . 

But, wait a minute . . . no more? 
As in finished? You mean four years 
have already passed and I have to 
leave Union now? Oh. That's not so 
great. I'm really gonna miss it here! 

I'll always remember how friendly 
the people are, how much the profes- 
sors really care, and just the exciting 
feeling of being a part of Union. 
Dorm life will surely hold a lot of 
memories, and I won 't forget how the 
organizations here made college life 
the best it could be. I won 't forget all 
the special friends I've made either; 
friendships that will last a lifetime.

Before a good education, before extra- 
curricular activities, and before the B.A. de- 
gree, the most important thing that I gained 
in my four years at Union is the friendships. 
In high school I had alot of good friends — 
but after graduation we went our separate 
ways and lost touch. I know, however, the 
friendships that I have made at Union will 
last forever. There is such a diverse group of 
people at Union — each with some unique 
talent and personality. When I have looked 
in an area — there was always a friend to 
help me — whenever I cried there was a 
shoulder, and when there was a frown — 
laughter changed it. Union gave me the pre- 
cious opportunity to make friends, enjoy 
friendships, and to love those friends. I know 
these bonds will never be broken.

More than anything. Union has given me 
direction for my life. Being here has helped 
me find myself, and God's will for my life. I 
remember so many times in the past four 
years when I could see God picking me up 
and helping me through when I couldn't 
make it on my own. He has taught me faith 
and endurance (especially during finals 
week!) that will last a lifetime. 

Sure, I'll miss Union, but I'll always have 
fond memories, lifetime friends, and a life- 
time purpose: What more could I ask for.'' 
and, just think, graduation day is a whole 
new beginning!

In my years here at Union I have seen 
many changes. Changes in laces, not only of 
people but also in the faces ofche campus. I 
have seen rapid growth over the last four 
years. We can only thank the Lord for his 
blessings on us and the chance to receive a 
Christian education such as we have. 

As I look back, I see beautiful times. 
Whether happy or sad, it matters not. I think 
of all the people I have met and try to image 
what my life would have been like without 
each of them. It would have, no doubt, been 
much less fulfilling. As I prepare to leave 
Union, I acknowledge the void that will 
soon be present. It will surely seem as 
though a part of me is missing. 

I am like the old seafarer who said, "I 
need only a ship and a star to steer by. " I 
have my ship in my education and my star in 
my Creator. With this combination I cannot 
veer too far off of my life's appointed 
course. I leave here with the hopes that I am 
the best I can be for God and myself With 
this confidence I hope one day I may be of 
service to someone in need.

Lest We Forget Yearbook 

A Reality 

A Special 
Congratulations To 

Dr. Barefoot 



The '87 yearbook comes to a close. A year full of memories and 
dreams have been captured and we, the staff, hope you enjoy it 
time after time. But is this really a close, a stopping place, an 
ending, are we really closing up shopr' We think not! Looking over 
the past school year, many voices and images come to mind; 
images and voices that will never end, but live forever Remember; 

Every experience God gives us . . . 

Every person he puts in our lives . . . 

is the perfect preparation for the future that only 

he can see. 

Good instincts tell you what to do 
long before your head figures it out. 

Laughter is a rran- 
quilizer with no side 

Intelligent.'' His train ot thought 
never left the depot.

/ Me a little rebellion now and 
then. It is like a storm in the 

Persistent? She'd have the last word 
with an echo. 


When one is asked to describe a yearbook 
in one word the most common response is 
"memoties". I believe that memories play the 
major role in a yearbook. It conjures up 
thoughts of the past. The past, as we refer to 
it, was at one time the present — our present 
as we struggled to meet the challenges of the 
day. The challenges we met not only grati- 
fied us then, but also laid the foundation for 
our future. Our follies and adventures all 
become a part of the memories we share. 
One group that learned together was the 
annual staff We started out with new ideas 
and big dreams and immediately found work, 
work, and more work. We also found friend- 
ships and abundant good times. The staff gath- 
ers more memories than anyone as we compile 
the year's events and share in the achievements 
of others. The staff has provided a wealth of 
support and hard work to bring the best year- 
book yet to Union. Many changes have taken 
place — hopefully for the better. I would like to 
personally thank Mr. Shuttleworth — "Rob- 
Bob" — for his belief in us and his "unique" 
sense of humor. Thanks, Penny, for your pa - 
tience and endurance and putting up with a 
multitude of problems. I want to thank Scott 
and Tammy for all of those long hours spent in 
the darkroom and roaming the campus with a 
camera permanently attached to their hands. 
And thanks to everyone else who provided a 
never-ending stream of work. 

The year has come and gone but our memo- 
ries will linger We now hold 1987 in our hearts 
and minds. Our hope, as a staff, is that a little bit 
is preserved between the covers of the '87 annu- 
al. In looking over the past year, a verse of a 
song seems to sum it all up . . . 

"Packing up the dreams God planted in the 
fertile soil of you — can't believe the hopes he's 
granted means a chapter in your life is through. 
We'll keep you close as always, it won't even 
seem you 've gone because our hearts in big and 
small ways will keep the love that keeps us 
strong, for friends are friends forever if the Lord 
is Lord of them. " 

Thank you. Lord, for our special friends.
